In connection with the establishment of relations between countries, it is rarely possible to avoid punishment for a crime committed in another country. As part of the implementation of international treaties on mutual legal assistance, an extradition procedure is envisaged – the extradition of a suspect or accused or convicted person upon request from the relevant foreign country. Also, such extradition is provided if the person is wanted by Interpol.

For your information! The extradition procedure is not always carried out in compliance with the rights and legitimate interests of the person concerned. If there is a threat of extradition, you should immediately seek the help of a lawyer.

Legal protection upon extradition from Prikhodko & Partners Law Firm

It is advisable to involve a lawyer in the extradition case as early as possible, in particular, immediately after the receiving of a request to establish the location of a person from a foreign state or Interpol. But under any circumstances, a lawyer at Prikhodko & Partners Law Firm is ready to quickly orientate in the situation, make recommendations to the client and take the necessary steps.

Important! The defense strategy against the threat of extradition is based on the use of the following arguments:

  • the person has applied to the State Migration Service with an application for granting him refugee status – until the decision is received, the extradition procedure is not applied;
  • Non bis in idem (Not twice for the same) – the person has served a sentence for the crime committed;
  • the limitation period for prosecution for a crime has expired;
  • the crime in which the person is suspected or accused does not lead to punishment with imprisonment under the legislation of Ukraine;
  • extradition of a person is contrary to Ukraine’s obligations under international agreements.
